fuse: hold i_mutex in fuse_file_fallocate()



Changing size of a file on server and local update (fuse_write_update_size)
should be always protected by inode->i_mutex. Otherwise a race like this is
possible:

1. Process 'A' calls fallocate(2) to extend file (~FALLOC_FL_KEEP_SIZE).
fuse_file_fallocate() sends FUSE_FALLOCATE request to the server.
2. Process 'B' calls ftruncate(2) shrinking the file. fuse_do_setattr()
sends shrinking FUSE_SETATTR request to the server and updates local i_size
by i_size_write(inode, outarg.attr.size).
3. Process 'A' resumes execution of fuse_file_fallocate() and calls
fuse_write_update_size(inode, offset + length). But 'offset + length' was
obsoleted by ftruncate from previous step.

Changed in v2 (thanks Brian and Anand for suggestions):
 - made relation between mutex_lock() and fuse_set_nowrite(inode) more
   explicit and clear.
 - updated patch description to use ftruncate(2) in example
